At WJS Canada, our goal is to help individuals become active, empowered and involved in their communities. We offer a wide range of local programs and services that encourage inclusion and participation.   Our passion is to improve lives and develop life skills.


Where do we work?

While WJS serves individuals in many communities across Canada, this opportunity is in Fort St John, BC.  Situated in the northeastern area of the province, Fort St John experiences an abundance of sunshine throughout the cold winters and warm summers.  It is also the transportation hub of the Peace region, and serves as the retail, service and industrial centre.  The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with ample opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the area while fishing, hunting, hiking and partaking in a variety of snow-based activities.  For more information on living and working in Fort St John visit: http://www.fortstjohn.ca/


The Program:

Interchange is a co-ed residence located in Fort St. John. The home provides a safe and structured communal living environment for Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) referred youth awaiting reunification with family, foster placement or semi-independent living. Interchange blends in with other houses located on a street in a quiet part of town close to facilities and amenities including a hospital, grocery stores, banks, churches and coffee shops. Fort St. John public transit is just steps from the home.


Emergency intakes are anticipated and prepared for. Once a youth has been referred to our home, staff work diligently to provide a relaxed and secure living experience. Support is provided in acquiring essential day to day life skills prior to transition from residential communal living to semi–independent or familial unification. The focus is on helping youth become fully functioning and a self-reliant member of the community.


The Position:

The Residential Child and Youth Worker (RCYW) provides care to children, youth or adults with moderate to severe behavioural problems in a residential or day program setting in an accredited agency. As key worker for assigned persons served, the RCYW is responsible for overall development and care of those individuals. In conjunction with the individual’s care team, the RCYW assesses physical, psychological, social and developmental needs, and designs and implements individualized personal service plans and plans of care that address and meet those needs. The RCYW also participates in the operation and maintenance of the program. This position requires membership in the BCGEU.
